Finally, a "White Hat" who gets it...they are a rare breed. Chief Lasky's book illustrates why being a firefighter is the best career in the world. He is forward thinking, but established in a foundation of old school values which gives him direction. All this is found in his book. This is an easy read, but a very complex subject. If you are on the 'Job', this is a must read - over and over again. Fall in love with the job all over - and be proud of what you do!

Outstanding book by Chief Lasky... gets to the heart of why we as firefighters do what we do. Serves as a reminder for the service as a whole to hold onto our core values which is what distinguishes our profession from so many others out there. An outstanding read, should be essential material on promotional reading lists if it isn't already!

Chief Lasky tells us what each of us was thinking. As a firefighter, we love what we do and why we do our job. This book is the kind of book you read through in a couple of days and learn from for a couple of lifetimes. Anyone who has a lackluster attitude needs to read this and realize that there is more to the service than just showing to work on time and going home when its your turn. Remembering that this is a family is the number one point that comes across in this book. Thanks Chief Lasky!

I had the opportunity to attend a seminar by the author which prompted me to buy the book. This contains much of what was in the seminar and has really inspired me to reach for the next level of pride and professionalism in my career as a firefighter. This is a must have for anyone serious about the fire service. Extremely helpful ideas on how to make the most of the greatest job in the world!

If you are embarking on a career in the fire service you must read this book, if you are getting promoted to company officer - you must read this book, if you are a fire chief - you must read this book. Read it and when you feel yourself struggling to with the issue of moral, read it again. Reading this book (& if given the opportunity to hear Chief Lasky lecture - Do it) will rekindle the fire that sparked your career to begin with. One of my favorite books I have ever read.
